The Quilt Show - These quilts done by Mary Manahan are not your grandmothers patchwork quilts of yesteryear, instead they are all very vibrant in color, texture and design. The artist makes use of many different kinds of fabrics from standard cotton to silks. She dies and paints some of the fabrics in order to get the colors and styles that she wants for the images that she is designing and each one is done with both sewing by had as well as some machine work. From a distance you might think that you are looking at a paining while viewing Mary’s quilts.
